Idoia Zenarrutzabeitia is a Member of the Board of the Spanish National Authority for Markets and Competition, created at the end of 2013 to integrate competition and regulation into a single agency in order to exploit the benefits deriving from the existence of comparable supervision duties, similar methodologies and procedures and, above all, the knowledge, expertise and experience that could be pooled together.
Ms Zenarrutzabeitia had previously been a Member of the Board of the Spanish National Energy Commission (2011 – 2013), and, when the new Authority for Markets and Competition was created, she was invited to play an active role in the development of the new organization.
With a law degree (specialising in legal and financial areas) from Deusto University, Ms Zenarrutzabeitia started her professional career in politics, and was a Member of Parliament for the Basque Nationalist Party (PNV) until she became Vicelehendakari (Vice-President) and Minister of Finance and Public Administration in the Basque Autonomous Government from 1999 to 2009.
